been trying to do a two-step and reposition and -- got an extreme makeover. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild again but he's going to bring down the hammer on "sesame street." it makes perfect sense. gwen: the morning the president got good news on the jobs front as the unemployment rate dropped if 8 .1 to 7 .8%. news so good that some romney supportsers even suggested the numbers must be cooked. let's start with the debate. we'll walk you through some of the numbers you heard and some you didn't to explain where the election stands tonight. first number, that 7 .8%. this is thousand candidates responded. >> so it looks like employment is getting better. the truth is if the same share of people were participating on the work force today as on the day the president got elected, our unemployment rate would be around 11%. >> today's news should give us some encouragement. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy. just to try to score a few political points. gwen: on balance, 34 days out, what is the bigger deal? the worse deal? a bad d

the left, incidentally bellyaching not covered under romney's plan, insisted on paying attention to the words they said, and pointed out that mitt changing almost all of his positions could backfire. like this from npr. romney goes on offense. pays for it in first wave of fact checks. oh no! mitt could lose the fact checking race. quick, some fact checker should research how many electoral college votes the swing state of fact checkelsvannia has. because-- because i think-- i think-- i think it's even fewer than north i don't give a [bleep]. folks, the fact check mafia is just a bet because romney won by pivoting. exactly like his senior advisor eric fernstrom said he was going to do after the primary. >> everything changes. if is almost like an etch-a-sketch, you can kind of shape it up-- shake it up and we start all over again. >> stephen: and everyone agrees last night mitt was pretty sketchy. >> he said things that were just not accurate. >> mitt romney presented with us the ultimate etch-a-sketch behavior last night. >> romney has been accused of etch-a-sketch. last night was h

completely, factually wrong. under the romney plan, the amount of money the government will give you will be equal to the amount of the second lowest bid, meaning you can then get that plan for nothing, or a cheaper plan -- there will be one plan cheaper -- and keep the extra money for your pocket. so you will have a choice with no expenditure on your part of at least two plants, and you also have the option of traditional medicare. >> allow me to add some facts here. under this precept, what i support is no change for current retirees and retirees for medicare. that is what mitt romney says. here is how it works. he would repeal obamacare. the 16 million senior citizens who are now getting preventive services would lose this. they would get preventive care without deductibles or copays. may i say, $3.9 billion. that would go out the window. that is what would happen with mitt romney's program. >> let me look at the big picture here. obama it is we day they are both completely disingenuous about this. the voucher plan will cost people seriously, as a move down the road in terms of services.

] rounding him up. elmo's got to watch out too. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild, but he's bringing the hammer down on "sesame street," it makes sense. lou: the president was trying to make a joke, but, mr. president, wait a minute. turns out big bird is deserving of considerable public attention. upon further investigation, it appears the last thing the president should be doing is to minimize what's happening to the taxpayer money because of big bird, all his friends like elmo and jim lehrer. the president should be paying attention to the count to help him with the numbers, and the numbers are troubling. on a day in which the congressional budget office announced the 2012 budget deficit came in at $11 trillion for a fourth straight year, turns out our out of control spending includes roughly $450 million given every year to the corporation for public broadcasting, $8 million of that going to, that's right, sesame workshop and big bird. it appears easy to dismiss millions of dollars when the government faces trillion of dollars in debt. the left may be cute with

mondale. the main themes of these is, number 1, romney has a plan to raise taxes on the middle class, which is absolutely false. and the one report it's based on was updated to say that they actually had looked at that time again and there is no reason under their assumptions that romney would have to raise taxes on the middle class. so that's number 1. and the second is that he wants to reduce the taxes on the rich. romney, knowing the damage that all of that has done, he went out there and said, number 1, i will cut taxes across the board, particularly on the middle class, and second, he made a distinction that liberals are simply unable to understand, the distinction between lowering tax rates and lowering tax revenues. he wants to lower the rates for the rich, and for everybody else. but he says, by eliminating loopholes and deductions to which the rich have much more access than anybody else, they will broaden the base and leave the revenue neutral or increase revenue. he says, i will not allow the share of the taxes that the rich are paying to go up. that undoes $100 million wo
